A beautiful hidden site in Blackrock, Co. Dublin
Glensavage is a beautiful hidden site of 2.49 acres (0.94 hectare) off Avoca Road in Blackrock. The site is characterised by its irregular shape and woodland appearance. The layout of the proposed development was designed in response to this with an arrangement of buildings of various scales and types stepping back and forward in plan throughout the site.
To the northern end, where the site is accessed from Avoca Road, are three single-storey gate lodges of 77 sqm. Beyond this, the site widens out and five larger houses of c. 315 sqm are proposed. These houses are two-storey and arranged around private courtyard gardens. To the southern end of the site are two apartment buildings, each three storeys high and accommodating a total of fourteen apartments. The entire site is landscaped with a combination of new and existing trees and lawns to maintain its woodland character.
The site is currently in the planning process.
